You Can Rent An Entire Island Off The Coast Of Tasmania

Many of us dream of one day owning our very own private island; a little piece of paradise away from the world’s prying eyes where we can be at one with nature and relax in the company of only our closest companions. Such places are usually well-hidden secrets, known to few.

If you haven’t yet hit the heights of corporate dominance but feel like sampling the experience, there is a way – and it sits just south of Tasmania’s mainland. 

Satellite Island is a privately owned gem recently opened to holidaymakers looking for a luxurious getaway. Covering 30 hectares, the beautiful, rugged landscape is surrounded by the waters of the Tasman sea.  

The owners offer complete exclusivity to those lucky enough to book a place, meaning that whether you’re going as a couple or a small group, you won’t be bumping into any unwanted tagalongs. 

Guests have the choice of two lodges during their stay. The Summer House comes with its own kitchen, dining area and bedrooms, for those who may want to wine and dine during the evening. Its interiors offer the ideal warmth and comfort needed after a day in the great outdoors. 

The Boathouse is the perfect spot for a couple looking for a more intimate trip. The bedroom opens up onto an idyllic veranda overlooking the surrounding waters, a picturesque setting that will have your friends green with envy. There’s also a nice woodfire barbeque to cook up the day’s catch if you wish to work your angling hand.

During the day, there is more than enough to do. Simply choose between a stroll along the island’s Rock Shelf coastal walk, or head further up the cliffs to take in the spectacular view. You may even spot the pair of resident sea eagles who also call the island home. 

If you’re after the ultimate retreat, surrounded by blissful calm and natural splendour, Satellite Island is a must.
